From storage to smart data retention
As data growth shows no sign of receding and data becomes ever more unstructured, the pressing need for storage continues.
Storage isn't just about capacity however. Instead it's about smart data retention. This involves evaluating data to determine what's hot and what's not, so appropriate media can be matched to deliver the right performance. By carefully examining retention periods, you are also enabled to arrive at better economics and to avoid bloating across production and backup infrastructures, even incorporating cloud storage where necessary. Finally, any data of a sensitive nature is encrypted and more readily made accessible.
Storage is in the DNA of Arrow’s business - a heritage that spans several decades. And just like the technology we work with, our expertise has evolved in step and our storage professionals are amongst the most respected in the business.
